"Out of nine planets (grahas) Raagu is most powerful, Whenever it is found in the eighth place of one's Raasi House, then he has to face the ordeal throughout his life. There is no other way to escape. One has to suffer. That is the unwritten rule. In order to seek solace, one has to visit R..."aagu Temple at Raagu Kaalam and has to perform Nivarthikal... Vithi enbarkal silapaer...Citha vinai enbarkal cilapaer...Ethuvenraalum carithan...Ethu Iraivan Potta Ellai Kodu.. Those who have faith can attend and submit their prayer in this temple..

One has to recite THIRUGNANA SAMBANDAHAR' S Kol Aru Pathikam daily.

"One of the best temples in Tamil Nadu. We went there twice (late one afternoon and then again early the next morning. Totally different atmosphere on both visits and both were excellent.
Managed to see the Aati ceremony in the main temple (9:00 am) - didn't want to impose but the temple people were..." really pleased to let us stand close by.
Only disappointment is not being able to get into the inner sanctum to see he chola murals.
